We all get to share in each others’ joys and good news, such as a job well done, a promotion, and even weddings and the birth of children. Also, we never hesitate to reward and high five employees when they go above and beyond with quarterly awards and even shout-outs on our social media, including Facebook and Instagram.
9. We’re all helpers.
Trish says, “I love that no matter which department I call, there is always someone who can answer my question or at least point me in the right direction instead of just passing the buck to the next guy.”
If we don’t know the answer to someone’s question, we still make sure they get the help they need. That’s part of the helpful team environment we all play a part in fostering at 180 Medical.
10. We get to make an impact on our communities.
HR Coordinator Abbey says one of the top reasons why she loves working at 180 Medical is “working with compassionate and dedicated people and making a positive impact in my community!”
At 180 Medical, one thing we’re all about is making a difference! Our employees love getting to participate in charitable events, community service opportunities, and fundraisers. In fact, we now offer each employee 8 hours of PTO (paid time off) for community service in addition to their regular benefits and PTO. This helps foster our values on service and helping others.
Whether we’re walking to support the National MS Society and the Spina Bifida Association or raising money for paralyzed veterans with a bake sale, we’re all about giving back. We also love volunteering to attend and support annual events like annual wheelchair basketball tournaments.
Our Difference Makers employee anniversary program offers employees who have been with the company for 10 and 15 years to select a charity. Then 180 Medical makes a donation on that employee’s behalf. You can learn more about the 180 culture and our community involvement here.
